Gym Bag Basics You Need Right Now!

Gym Bag Basics You Need Right Now!

 Today is a shorter post. I’m keeping it short and sweet. This is a list of some basics that are often forgotten but that you wish you had. Anything that can make going to the gym easier is a major bonus. I hate getting to the gym and not being able to find my lock or my headphones. To make it less caotic, I made a list of my top gym hacks and must have’s to keep you organized.

Reusable waterproof bag for wet stuff

  This is helpful regardless if you use the pool or use the showers. This keeps towels, bathing suits, or shower shoes from soaking everything else including your electronics.

Travel Size Bottles

  Space can be a huge issue when your packing a gym bag. Hauling huge bottles around isn’t a practical option. Having small travel size bottles are a major space saver but having reusable bottles to fill with shampoo, conditioner, body/face wash, or lotion you already have saves money. Who doesn’t want to do that?

                                         Water Bottle

  Water is incredibly important when you are working out. You need to stay hydrated! With so many different kinds and sizes you can be picky and find a bottle that fits your needs and style! This bottle from camel back is by far my favorite! Easy to clean and big enough!

                                             Dry Shampoo

  If you don’t like using public showers, dry shampoo is an excellent way to get you through until you can use your own. It’s also great if you don’t want to wash your hair everyday. Not your mother’s brand is is by far my favorite brand. Works and smells amazing!


  Obviously you need them but what do you do with them? Life Love Liz has a brilliant hack that simply involves clothes pins and tacky glue! So simple and effective!


  Grab a small breathable bag like these or a sock and put a handful of Downy Unstoppables inside. Tie off and throw it in your gym bag. It keeps your bag smelling amaaaazing!
